I have been running adapters for three years now, the only problem is finding the right studs if you ever break one.

I suppose they could be considered ' ok ' if your willing to check on them.
Scott wasnt running adapters when he threw a wheel, he double stacked spacers and not enough stud for the lugnut to tighten to.

I ran adapters with no problem just remember its 10 more lugnuts to tighten and keep and eye on.

I have spacers on my back wheels, use red Loctite to secure them like I did.
